Contact forms

Contact forms collect personal information such as name, email address and optionally message text. This information is submitted with own consent and cannot be verified for validity (e.g. fake names can be submitted). This information is stored in precisely the way it has been submitted. In the case of a mailing list sign-up, the information is stored only for so long as the user has not unsubscribed from the list. The option to unsubscribe is permanently available to each subscriber.


If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We analyse web-traffic behaviour on an anonymous and aggregated level. This means that no personal ties can be made between observed behaviour and individual identification. This data is collected only to measure reach, growth, and navigation patterns of users on our website.

Who we share your data with

Your information is not shared with or sold to third party companies or individuals in any way. The (limited) information collected is used solely for the improvement of user experience and/or as a means of communicating with users.

How long we retain your data

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
